The attached patch addresses a bug where a user enters the name of a KDE application in OpenWith dialog to open a remote file and the file is opened as if the user requested to open it with a non KDE application. That is a local copy of the file is created first. Currently this problem can be reproduced with kate because the "Exec=" line in its desktop file contains an additional option, "-b".

Note that this patch only addresses the specific condition where the user only typed in the KDE executable name. Other scenarios, like the user typing in not only the name of the KDE app but also additional command line options, will still produce this same issue.
Try to open a remote text or source file by typing "kate" in the open with dialog.
